Recently I had the good fortune to read the famous "Truth is a
pathless land" statement of Krishnamurti. The keynote of the statement is
the fact that we all should follow Truth - not some individual or some
organization - so that each one of us can understand/reach Truth. After
all the motto of TS is "There is No Religion Higher Than Truth".
When time permits, I will post the full statement of K.
